A group of teens are dangerously threatened by a spirit in a malicious, A.I. app following the mysterious death of their friend.
“This is the perfect set-up for a bad horror movie where no-one survives”, utters our tragically cursed lead, with the sort of self-aware smugness reserved for parody outings such as Scary Movie, or Scary Movie 2, or even, shockingly, Scary Movie 3. But the funny thing is, Bedeviled, directed by first time feature film directing pair, the Vang Brothers, is a horrible mishmash of much better, scarier, interesting horror movies. An interesting concept is turned into a hilariously stupid conceit, and the writing, also penned by the Vangs, is about as nuanced and handled as a glitchy app.
Please understand, the idea here is actually brilliant
